The Observer

The Eraser song "Atoms For Peace" is about Yorke grappling with his worrywart, paranoid-android tendencies. 'No more going to the dark side with your flying saucer eyes,' it begins. 'No more talk about the old days, it's time for something great.'

'Quite a personal song, really,' Yorke sniffed. 'Trying to correlate my life with choosing to do this, and choosing to get over the fear which is a constant thing I have. Being a rock star, you're supposed to have super-├╝ber-confidence all the time. And I don't.' A pause. 'And it was my missus telling me to get it together basically.'
